? how much can you use him? >> president clinton has been an enormous ally for us and asset. two weekends back he was coming in the next day in pennsylvania, and colorado, and people remember that he was a president that came in when the economy was tough, and by the end of his eight years the economy was going well. remember, he and president reagan both in their first mid terms had approval ratings that were sim to where president obama's are right now, but president clinton did so many things to get that economy that was challenged climbing again, and i know president obama looks at his job and feels like it's basically the feel job, take an anemic economy and have it grow stronger, and deal with the deficits over the course of his presidency. there is much to emlate. the good news is, we had a wake-up call earlier in the year. none of the candidates have been running complacently. they have been running scared. for as much concerns people have about the democrats, look at the republican approval rating in the polls. this is not a popular republican party right now. >> some ma
. her previous campaign manager has come out and said she just used the campaign money to pay her own rent which is not legal use of campaign money. i think she will try to just brush that story aside as the typical cross fire that any politician gets into, and try to find her way to the middle on some of these policy questions. >> but in 49 days, how much nondamage can she do to herself when as rachel maddow showed these tapes from mtv, there are tapes in which a candidate for senate for the use, which is what she is now, is discussing openly how people shouldn't masturbate? that would seem to be a difficult sell even in delaware. >> she's going to say it's 14 years ago and she is going to try to not get into repeating those specifics that she got into on that tape. and try to say something that sounds, indicate religiously high minded. that is kind of general. and saying no one should press me on these issues. she may take what she took into a punish you've and now try to play it as a personal issue that should not be questioned. >>> >> 30 seconds, it's a speight impression. does sh

'll tell us how the administration is about to go with a prominent republican. let's begin with brianna keilar live in washington. congress is back in session for the big midterm election push and they've got a very big issue on their hands in the matter of whether or not to extend these bush tax cuts. this is -- this is going to be an interesting one to watch in the next couple of days. >> and this is the big issue, jim. this is the issue that in really less than four weeks because they're out of there again. they're out of washington again ahead of the election season, this is what they're going to be dealing with. and obviously, the issue that continues to resinate is republican leader john boehner who had said that he would go along with extending the tax cuts for everyone except for the wealthiest earns, which, of course, is what president obama has gone for. but it's created a jumbled message among republicans. because look at what some other republicans are saying. you have mitch mcconnell who is saying, no, i'm pushing legislation to keep these tax cuts in place across the board

in and keeping us up to date and we are keeping our eye on the situation. when we get details, we will pass them along. we have another breaking news story from mexico. hundreds of families may be dead because of this hillside collapse that happened there. it was a landslide that happened in the region of mexico, the southern part of the country, closer to guatemala. after days of rain, a landslide buried between 100 and 300 homes, as many as 1,000 people could be dead. rescuers meantime having challenges even getting to the area. the weather channel's alex wal sas in atlanta. me a little bit about the weather conditions and how it might hamper the rescue effort. >> we are talking about an area here that is very, very hilly. remember we just had a tropical cyclone matthew that moved through. matthew, remnants are hanging around and the moisture is still around for us. all the moisture is rolling into the hilly terrain in mexico, southern portions of mexico. as that happens, the moisture begins to rise even more with the terrain and all that rising with warm moist air. gets a chance to precipitat
at home for staying with us for the next hour. there is so much going on in politics right now that the staff of this show produced roughly 2 1/2 complete shows over the course of the day today in an effort to try to cover it all. what has actually made the cut for this hour is, one, an update on don't ask, don't tell. the next step toward ending the military's gay ban could happen as soon as tomorrow. we will explain. number two, the republican party is releasing its election year agenda tomorrow. that agenda leaked tonight. so we have seen it. the headline is that it totally avoids the blockbuster change-the-country policy idea that all of its high-profile candidates are actually running on this year. and number three, new reporting on "c" street. if you have been wondering what that quasi-religious super-shadowing having affairs on their wives while thumping their bibles bunch has been up to recently, there is an answer to that question. we've got it with jeff charlotte. that is all ahead this hour. >>> but we begin tonight with something sort of weird happening in politics.
green of the progressive change campaign committee. thank you both for joining us. now, adam, no whining, okay? >> okay. >> no whining. >> that's a deal. >> just don't whine, we're going to start with eric. eric, let's start with another quote in your interview, where the president says, if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place. if you're serious, now's exactly the time that people have to step up. now, here we have another "rolling stone" quote that's causing trouble. this is after general mcchrystal ended his career with "rolling stone" quotes thanks to you guys. was this one of those things like in the mcchrystal interview where he maybe didn't quite realize what the impact would be once this was in print? >> no, i think in this case the president knew exactly what he was doing. he sends a clear message to democratic voters that they need to get out to the polls this november. i think the white house position and the white house and the president's own perspective comes across very clearly in this interview that he feels

"the washington post" managing editor of postpolitics tonight come and also a msnbc contributor and jonathan alter is an analyst and national affairs columnist for "newsweek" magazine and author of "the promi promise." what a night in politics. unbelievable stuff. jonath jonathan, i spoke with the national senatorial committee chairman saying we are behind her, sending her the mass numb $42,000 from the committee. chairman cornyn sending her a check about his pac. what's this all disunity?

're paying attention to this document that's made us historically the freest and most just nation in the face of the earth. >> do you think it's out of the curriculum or do they feel we can offer an overview today? >> well, bruce cole who worked with the national endowment for the humanities for several years said we're suffering from american amnesia. we don't know what it means to be an american anymore because we don't teach civics. we don't teach people the fundamental rules of how our government works. it's too political but ultimately when you don't teach politics, somebody's politics is going to govern just by default. one of the best things we can possibly do is to show the whole system what the check and balances and the ideas that our founders and framers put into the constitution to make sure that we would all be dealt with justly and fairly in our unique form of governor. what washington called an experiment in the republican government. >> and you overall, you know, you have some problems with the supreme court where they're citing international law that i find very disturbing.
. thanks for being with us. "countdown with keith olbermann" starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? christine o'donnell and the tea hottests convene in d.c. ready for my clo-up, mr. demille. >> there are more of us than there are of them. >> politico's report. the vetting process for o'donnell and the others? there is no vetting process. if it was popular to be really liberal now says her former campaign manager, maybe she'd do that. sarah palin vouched for joe miller he was the real deal. then there is the o'donnell treasure trove. obama -- >> is so liberal that he's anti-american. we took the bible and prayer out of public schools. now we're having weekly shootings practically where -- >> 49-49, i call that a tie. >> no, christine, he won in votes. you know that. >> no, no. what do the election results say that i got? >> they say that you got less results than he did. >> which ken vogel of politico and all the christine o'donnell sound bites you can eat. >>> the values voters summit. that's a brand name. >> like speaker pelosi, who has been busy
association with tea party candidates and in part because she was such a surprise winner and tell us a little bit about what you think about her and what the buzz is there about her. >> well, i think there's another part to it and that is that she was attacked by republicans. the republican establishment and i think when you put all of that into the mix, that has raised her profile beyond anything that it would have been on its own. the fact that she upset a 40-year political veteran who was a liberal republican and that the establishment had backed him and then when she wins, they get mad and attack her. so, that makes the mix, given this tea party background of kind of anti-incumbent, it's a pretty powerful mix. >> and i'm also interested because the first thing you said is that she was attacked by the party establishment. we heard it from the state gop chairman, we heard it from karl rove who called her nutty and it does sort of point to what is seen as this great divide within the republican party and a lot of people questioning whether that's going to serve conservative views long term.
